MONTEGO BAY, St James — Defending champions Herbert Morrison Technical and former winners Cornwall College are through to Monday's final of the ISSA Western Conference Under-14 Boys' basketball competition, after wins in the semi-finals at Montego Bay Cricket Club on Wednesday.

Cornwall College handed Holland High their first loss of the season, ending their six-game winning run with a 39-24 victory, while Herbert Morrison beat Muschett High 60-17 to set themselves up as favourites to retain their title.

Muschett High and Holland High will meet in the consolation play-offs on Monday before the final, both at Montego Bay Cricket Club.

In the first game that was interrupted by rain just before half-time, Cornwall College got off to a fast start and scored the first seven points of the game before ending the first quarter leading 8-3.

The former champions then separated themselves in the second quarter and led 26-8 before Flawless Travers, who scored a game-high 15 points, led a rally to close the gap to single digits, but once again Cornwall were able to respond and led 35-22 at the end of the third quarter.

Kristoff Hemmings scored 10 points to lead Cornwall College, while Dontae McBean and Fitzroy Cameron both scored six points.

It was complete dominance for Herbert Morrison against Muschett High, who only got into the semi-finals after Brown's Town forfeited their last two games.

Led by Kyle Fraser and Donric Scott who had double-doubles, Herbert Morrison led 15-4 after the first quarter and were ahead 31-6 at half-time and 43-6 at the end of the third quarter.

Fraser had 12 points, 10 steals and six rebounds for Herbert Morrison, Scott had 10 points, three rebounds and four assists, while Dalmar Clarke scored 11 points.
